Master Violin Maker & Restorer
this is where it all happens...
violins lined up waiting to be restored
inside the peg drawer
sycamore for restorations and repairs
cello blanks (unfitted)
violin and viola bridges
old fingerboards for recycling, cello fingerboards can be turned into violin fingerboards, violin fingerboards into nuts, saddles, ebony crowns etc.
some of the gypsum casts used for restoration
drawer full of sharpening stones
cut off's from violin, viola and cello necks that have been replaced with a new neckgraft
my old band saw, which came from the late Dietrich Kessler's estate and holds special memories for me
